This climb,in the Friulian mountains of north-east Italy (near the famous Zoncolan) is a very regular and beautiful climb. In the last 14km you gain a height of about 1390meters. In the last section (about 2km before you reach the top) the sloopes raise (for about 400m)up to 18%. Until you reach the little village Tualis you have a nice view over the Val Degano valley. Then you enter a forest(you are on a height of about 900m. The only thing you will see for about 10km are trees... (pinewood). The road is in a very good condition. The traffic is very low. In fact, during my climb i did not see a single car. Only in the last 3-4 km you get a view over the Val Calda Valley and Monte Zoncolan. You cbn not reach the summit of the Crostis (2251m) by bike. A footpath is the only solution. On the summit you really heve a fabulous view of as wel the north as the south of the region. Back to the bike road: the west summit and the east summit are separated bij a 5km long ofroad track; only with a mountain bike you can ride the whole part of the track. Going down the other side (to Ravascletto) is a nice option. The road is also in an excellent condition with hardly no traffic (except tourists...)
